Super Mario Toadstool Card in a Box



Hiya Folks!

Wowzers!  How fast a week can fly by!  Even though its been quiet here on the blog this week I've still been creating like crazy; my oldest son's birthday party is next weekend and I'm working on what feels like loads of projects in preparation (completely my own doing mind you).  My poor card room has exploded in a mish mash of half finished ideas that I hope will all come together in the end ;)  Stay tuned for all the details in the upcoming week!

I am happy to report that I do have one card to share with you this week, and as it turns out its a pretty special one. I was contacted via email a few days ago asking if I'd be interested in doing a Super Mario themed Card in a Box.  Sure, I thought, as my brain scrambled to figure out how I was going to complete this with so many other projects on the go.  But, not wanting to disappoint, I quickly said yes and asked the customer to send all the information required.  The moment I received the email reply I knew without a doubt that my projects could wait and this one would take preference.

As it turns out this card is meant for a little boy by the name of Danny Nickerson.  Danny turns 6 years old today and unfortunately was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor about a month ago.  His only birthday wish is to receive a mail box full of birthday cards - and I'm so happy that this card will be one of them!  I truly hope it brings a smile to his face!  If you are interested in reading more on Danny's story, please click HERE.
